Vancouver+ for FS9 easter egg

Thursday, April 5th, 2007

Well, Frank reminds me as we approach Easter that I never did reveal the Vancouver+ Easter Eggs.  The unannounced feature was animated birds at these locations.  Can you find them all?

<!– Point Atkinson –>
<!– Downtown Vancouver adjacent to CYHC docks –>
<!– Stanley Park – Lost Lagoon –>
<!– CAM9 – Harbour Air –>
<!– CAM9 – Seair –>
<!– CAJ8 Pitt Meadows –>
<!– Steveston (near the fishing docks) –>
<!– CAE5 – Whistler –>
<!– CAE7 – Harrison –>
<!– CYHE – Hope –>
<!– Reifel Sanctuary (very large flock here, nearly 100 birds, but close to ground and hard to find: this was the one I hinted at –>

    Hi Jon,

    I found that a helicopter works best at the Reifel Bird Sanctuary. By the way, I think the scientific
    classification for those fellows are: FSX Beta Birds

    Thanks again for the Easter present,

    No, worries, Frank, glad you found them. And do thank Larry Silsbee who designed those feathered friends.

    In the FSX version, we have added hawks at various locations.
